WIMN’s LIGA Program — Leadership in Global Advocacy

September 12, 2023

In June WIMN launched its new pilot program, Leadership in Global Advocacy or “LIGA” to help strengthen grassroots voices in international migrant rights advocacy. The program aims to create a strong, participatory, collective process that enhances leadership and skills while building more powerful relationships and alliances.

During this 6-month-long pilot, WIMN will hold a virtual space for active listening and peer learning–a “popular education” approach incorporating lived experiences. For this pilot program, four Spanish-speaking organizations were selected from applicants. Through their participation, they will contribute to WIMN’s analyses, policy positions and advocacy actions on key issues–particularly towards shaping a feminist, intersectional advocacy agenda on human rights of women in migration. Each of the organizations receives a monthly stipend to support their participation.

WIMN hopes to continue the program on an annual basis, broadening outreach and capacity to support groups in various regions and with different languages. The pilot is supported through a grant from Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Participants in the LIGA pilot program include:

ACCSS — Asociación Coordinadora Communitaria de Servicios para la Salud (Guatemala)

CAFAMICentro de Atención a la Familia Migrante Indígena (Mexico)

ODA — Otros Dreams en Acción (Mexico)

Red Latinas – Red de Mujeres Latinoamericanas y del Caribe (Spain)
